Characteristics of Eguren Ugarte Crianza

Eguren Ugarte Crianza is a red wine from D.O. Rioja produced by Bodegas Ugarte, one of the wineries owned by the Eguren family.

This classic wine is a coupage of, mainly, Tempranillo and a small percentage of Grenache. The grapes are grown in vineyards located in Labastida, Páganos and Elciego, the heart of Rioja Alavesa.
The climate in this area is Mediterranean but with a great Atlantic influence. Sierra de Cantabria acts as a natural protection barrier for cold winds from the north.
The vines are planted in clay-lime soils located at an altitude between 400 and 700 metres above sea level. The soils demonstrate the marvellous characteristics of the vine cultivation.
The harvest is done mechanically in order to ensure the grapes are collected at the optimum moment. After the selection of the grapes in the winery, there is a destemming and squeezing.
Afterwards, the must undergoes a fermentation with selected yeast for 15 days at a controlled temperature of 25-28ªC. There is a daily pumping during this process.
Once the fermentation finishes, there is a maceration for 7 days.

Finally, Eguren Ugarte Crianza rests in American and French oak barrels for 15 months undergoing a racking every 4-6 months. The aging process finishes with 6 months in the bottle before being released onto the market.

Tasting notes Eguren Ugarte Crianza

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
Sight Ruby colour. Clean and bright. Nose On the nose it is very intense with a predominance of ripe red fruit, blueberries, currants, plums, roasted notes from the aging. Taste On the palate it is a wine with good structure, body and volume. Ripe and round tannins. Vanilla aftertaste.
Sight Ruby red. Clean and bright. Nose Intense and fruity (blackberry, cherry), with a balance between toasted wood and smoked notes. Taste Aromatic on the palate. Ripe, well blended tannins that give body, structure and volume to the wine. A finish with a hint of vanilla.
Sight The tasting repport of this wine is being translated. Meanwhile, you can check the Spanish version.
Sight Dark cherry colour with maroon edges. Clean and bright wine with thin tears. Nose From the calm wine, plenty of ripe red and black fruit is perceived with a touch of wood. When it opens up, the fruit becomes much more intense and its aromas are mixed with milky, creamy, vanilla and elegant toasted hints. Very balanced wine with a perfect harmony. Taste Very elegant and soft wine with a silky and tasty mdi palate. Its notes of fruit, wood and spices (vanilla, chocolate, coffee) are well balanced and keep a perfect structure. Its marked acidity provides it with freshness. Tannins still need to finish polishing in the bottle. Long finish with good persistence that leaves toasted aromas. A very nice wine.
Sight Garnet cherry color, intense and brilliant. Nose Ripe fruit, especially black fruit, dominates the aromas typical of the breed. Spicy notes and a light touch of toasted wood.
Taste Agressive entry, with a more than correct acidity. Soft tannins make this wine pleasant to drink.

 

Nose Nose: The ripe fruit dominates a bouquet that captures the emerging upbringing and a slight touch tostado. Taste Mouth: soft tannins that make their intake more pleasant and bearable
